Griffin Denies Ferrari Crash was Hoax

Eddie Griffin says his Ferrari crash was no hoax. The movie comic - who on March 26 crashed a $1.5 million Ferrari Enzo sports car on a California race track - says the crackup was not a stunt to publicize his upcoming movie Redline.

Griffin was taking part in a charity race at Irwindale Speedway when he hit a concrete barrier. He says the Enzo - one of only 400 made - caught a cone beneath a tire and skidded into the divider.

Speaking to the web site for the television show Access Hollywood, Eddie Griffin said "I shouldn't be behind the wheel in a car race. There's a reason I did acting and didn't become a NASCAR racer. We will stick to microphones."
